From Part 1 To find actual Distance we use two methods: (1) If given scale is statement scale, take the map distance multiply by given ground distance in the scale provided: Example: if the scale is 1cm to 4km, take MAP DITANCE X 4Km if the scale is 1cm to 0.5km, take MAP DITANCE X 0.5Km 2) If given scale is RF scale, put denominator of the scale over 100000 then multiply by Map distance provided. Example: if the scale is 1:50000, take MAP DITANCE X if the scale is 1:200000, take MAP DITANCE X
Qu #5: The map distance from one point to another is 5 cm, find the actual distance if the map scale is 1:50000 Solution MAP DITANCE X 5 cm X Therefore the actual distance is 2.5 km Qu #6: The distance from home to school on a map drawn to a scale of 1cm to 3km is 10cm, find the actual distance from home to school
Solution MAP DITANCE X 3Km = 10 X 3 = 30km Therefore the actual distance is 30km *********** END OF PART ONE ************ Click here to go to the first part (Map scale introduction). ********* [SCL421ARTC]*****
